"Making Conservation a California Way of Life" WateReuse California Webinar - Provisions for Reuse

July 24, 2024
Contact Hours:

WRCA will be hosting a webinar July 24 from 10 am to 11 am to review the regulations -- with an emphasis on understanding the reuse requirements. Please join Rosario Cortés, Manager of Regulatory Affairs for WRCA and Fiona Sanchez, Director of Water Resources for Irvine Ranch Water District for this webcast.

On July 3, the State Water Resources Control Board (State Board) will meet to consider a resolution to adopt the proposed regulation to make conservation a California way of life. The public can provide oral comments either in person or through a remote option. Once adopted, the regulation will go through some administrative steps and go into effect at the beginning of 2025.

On June 14, the State Water Resources Control Board posted the updated regulation text labeled Updated Proposed Text v4. Written comments on the June 14 version are due to the State Water Board by July 1 via email to commentletters@waterboards.ca.gov.

WRCA submitted a comment letter on the previous version asking for minor changes that impact recycled water and potable reuse. WRCA sought clarification for the mathematical formula contained in the regulations for the high Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) recycled water variance – one of the variances that WRCA successfully fought to achieve in the legislation and regulations.

Since the passage of the implementing legislation in 2018 (AB 1668 and SB 606), WRCA has worked almost continuously with both the Department of Water Resources and the State Board to help shape and clarify the regulations as they impact non-potable recycled water and potable reuse in California. This has included submitting many comment letters, testifying before the State Board, and participating in numerous stakeholder meetings.
